Dancing Divas {Parker Family Photographer}

Look at this family. Aren't they adorable? The youngest daughter goes to the same dance studio as my girls, and I've taken several pictures of her at the dance studio before performances. I was lucky enough to photograph the rest of her family, and they were naturals in front of the camera. At the end, we turned on the fan and the girls hammed it up!

Lots of laughter {Denver family photographer}

I had this fun downtown session with a great family on Saturday. We were really wondering if we should reschedule the session for Monday because the weather report was so iffy. (And if you live in Denver, you know you can never trust the weather, because it's schizophrenic). When we left to go downtown, it was snowing in Parker--but bright and sunny at Larimer Square! On the way, the dad said, "People aren't going to stop and stare at us, are they?" I assured him that I had never had that happen on a shoot. Well, wouldn't you know it--people stopped and stared. Mostly to say, "That's a great picture, " or "What a cute family." Or to compliment me on my large camera :) Despite that, we had a fun time, and there was loads of tickling, funny faces, and laughing during the shoot. By the end, we were all freezing (even though it was sunny), but it's a good thing we did it, because now it's Monday and snowing everywhere!

A very blustery day {Parker photographer}

On Saturday, I had a shoot scheduled with one of my favorite families. The weather report said the temperature would be in the 70s. A perfect fall day! However, the weather report did not mention the gale-force winds! Holy cow! I was hoping the wind would die down for the shoot, but no such luck! Thankfully, we found a cute log cabin that blocked most of the wind so we could get some decent shots!
